Thought-provoking, Great acting, Great staging, Chapman's trinity = jesuschrist, johnlennon, holdencaulfield, Edgy

See it if want a trip into the mind of an assassin with tangible passes thru ego, super-ego & id,

Don't see it if you aren't familiar with the Lennon/Chapman story or at least that the play is attempting to comment on the status of an assassin's madness Read more

Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Original

See it if you are interested in romantic relationships which examine mental health issues or would like a hypothetical look into Chapman's life.

Don't see it if you do not like smaller productions or are bothered by stories including mental health issues.

October 28th, 2016

"It seems as though these transitions and the set exist to show just how out of place Chapman is—his social skills are a bit lacking, especially sexually, and the musical transitions allow the audience to see his stiff attempts at dancing. But the transitions tend to cut off all of the tension built up in the previous scene...Even if this extended metaphor doesn’t work for you, you may still leave wanting to find your high school copy of 'The Catcher in the Rye' and give it another read."

"This is all interesting stuff, both historically and psychologically. Yet it doesn’t quite fill up the space and time of the drama...Sarah Norris directs skillfully...But with all that solidly creative work, the themes don’t expand enough to fully inhabit or fully enliven the action. The script makes its points repeatedly, a couple of scenes go on too long, and I was left feeling only partially engaged by all the good work happening on stage."
